Songs of Praise
Title: Songs of Praise
Publisher: David C Cook
If you've ever been tempted to think that following God guarantees an easy life, King David’s story will set you straight.
King David is the only person described in the Bible as being “a man after God’s own hear”—yet he was an adulterer and a murderer, among other things. His family fell apart toward the end of his life, and he made some terrible decisions along the way. But through it all, he was always ready, if not immediately, to admit he was wrong and to turn to God and ask for forgiveness.
David poured out his heart to God in a whole series of poems and songs that make up most of the book of Psalms.
In these Bible Daily notes, Jeff Lucas connects the Psalms with the occasions on which David may have written them, to shows us David, in all his goodness and all his sin. And in so doing, we—who are an equal mix of good and bad—find hope and reasons to thank God.
Bible Daily notes are written by Jeff Lucas to help you apply the lessons of God’s Word daily. Each day and with each devotion, Jeff uses his signature wit and wisdom to reveal insights and practical application you can use in your own life. Each Bible devotion takes only a few minutes to read, but the lessons learned can last a lifetime.
